I love thomas even more now

this movie is a kinda mixture of "art of getting by", "The dangerous lives of altar boys" and "the girl next door"..yet has its own face and mood. very nice. thomas was very real.i don't know why but in some moments i was thinking it wasn't just a movie for thomas ,he actually thinks this way.for example about girls and relationships,boy who wants to find interesting,different girl..i think he is this kind of a guy in real life..I've watched all of the movies and i guess this is his best movie ever..i love him.

for all people out there,if you enjoy movies about cancer like "my sisters keeper" you should watch this..you will enjoy. (sorry for my terrile English)

Superheroes Don't Make Compromises

I love resilience. The relentless search for true love. The reason for us to be here and to have faith. Death of a Superhero is as grim as it is bad ass. Fantastic portrayal of an adolescent soul trapped in between the fear of an unfulfilled life and a sense of rightness. The film makes no compromises even in the face of death, instead turns everything into a comic book fantasy. The Superhero lives on. Risqué, Surreal,Emotional and funny at times. Death Of a Superhero tells a story that we avoid talking about and rarely deal with so boldly. Must watch for all of us whether you have lost a dear one or not. The plot gives enough time for the characters to evolve. The combined effect of performances, cinematography and music builds a world you would want to linger around for a while.

nice dying guy coming-of-age movie

Donald (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) is dying of cancer. He's angry and distancing himself from his parents. He draws comic book art and sees his world through his drawings. He is sent to shrink #6 Dr. Adrian King (Andy Serkis). He also falls for rebellious classmate Shelly (Aisling Loftus). She insists on using O'Reilly after her step-father Fitzgerald left.

The kid is good in the role. He's got an interesting face and was also memorable in 'Game of Thrones'. This is a pretty standard sick kid role. Andy Serkis shows that he's more than a motion capture actor although I wish he gets rid of those sweaters. It's too obvious. Donald's friends need to be fleshed out more. They are all non-descript idiots without any distinguishing qualities. It may be useful to have only one best friend played by a good young comic. Aisling Loftus is great as the dream girl. The problem is that the movie moves away from her too much. Their relationship has some of the best moments of the movie. I especially like the scene where he lets her down.
